Your Sim card has failed, which is why your phone can't find your service provider, though you should, and your myfaves may be gone if the data from the sim card and the phones memory cannot be recovered.

There is nothing you can do to rectify your situation, so get into inmmediate personal contact with your provider first by another phone and then arrange for a personal visit to one of their offices so that you can salvage what you can as soon as you can.

There's nothing I can help you with, since it's a financial and phone provider issue.

I just got an unlocked sidekick lx 2009 and put in my att sim card. I can make calls but it is not reading my contacts. what do i do?


More than likely your contacts are still located in the old phone. Replace the Sim card back into the old phone and copy the contacts onto the Sim card, place back in your Sidekick and you then can locate your contacts.

My sidekick wont get service


Maybe it's because you're phone might off turned off and you didn't know. Because, if a sidekick turns off, normally when it comes back on everything is gone.

My side-kick LX will not turn on


Try this, though is used for when the device is randomly rebooting aswell, it might help you to force your Sidekick to come back on:
  1. Check the device's battery level for at least two bars of strength.
  2. If the battery level is low, charge the battery.
  3. If the issue is not resolved, remove the back cover.
  4. Remove the battery.
  5. Wait 10 seconds.
  6. Press and hold the W key.
  7. While pressing down the W key, re-insert the battery.
    • The device restarts and after approximately 15 seconds, the 'Recovery' screen appears.

  8. Select the desired language.
  9. Select Reboot to restart the device.
  10. Your Sidekick should go back to the main screen as normal. Good luck

Malfunction!


sounds like your simcard isn't making good contact. try removing it and cleaning contacts. if that doesn't work go to menu-settings-network options (near bottom) and make surre it is on your service provider. if not select scan manually and when it pulls the list up select your provider and it should work. this also works with the att simcard in a sidekick lx after you change your sim pin number in sim center.

Phone will not turn on


Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.

The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here

The sidekick Lx


You can try this. It works on Sidekick 3's

1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left)
2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call)
3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time.
4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code

If that doesn't work you can trya Master Reset

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.
